Summary

Welcome to Nocturne Falls, the town that celebrates Halloween 365 days a year. The tourists think it's all a show: the vampires, the werewolves, the witches, the occasional gargoyle flying through the sky. But the supernaturals populating the town know better.

Living in Nocturne Falls means being yourself. Fangs, fur, and all.

Willa Iscove, fae jeweler, has her first stalker. Really, he's just one of her lovesick customers. The ring she crafted to help him find new love has backfired, making Willa the object of his affections. In a bid to rid herself of her amorous client, Willa makes a wish in the Nocturne Falls fountain using the piece of opal in her pocket and in doing so, unknowingly conscripts as her guardian the sexy gargoyle on duty.

Former Army Ranger and gargoyle Nick Hardwin has some serious suspicions about the pretty fae who just invoked the ancient pact for protection. Her kind have been at odds with his kind for ages. Now she wants his help? He's determined to figure out what she's up to. Which won't be a hardship considering how much fun she is to be around. And kiss.

But then her stalker turns out to be the tip of the iceberg and things go really wrong, really fast. When they're both kidnapped, Willa is forced to make a hard decision. The life of her family or the freedom of the man she's fallen for?

Loved this book, it was fun getting to learn about the Fae and the Gargoyles. I loved Nick and Willa, they were a good match! Looking forward to the next Nocturne Falls book!

A great Supernatural Cozy Mystery

I just love every visit to Nocturne Falls because it always leaves me happy!

Welcome to Nocturne Falls, the town where Halloween is celebrated 365 days a year. The tourists think it’s all a show: the vampires, the werewolves, the witches, the occasional gargoyle flying through the sky. But the supernaturals populating the town know better.

This book focuses on Nick, a Gargoyle who becomes one of the towns characters in order to oversee the town where some crimes have recently been reported and Willa the fae jeweller whose magical creations are far more than normal pieces of jewellery. They are magical works of art. Unfortunately Willa makes a ring for a rock troll who develops a stalkeresque fascination with willa.
Willa makes a wish at the town fountain where unknowingly, she binds the gargoyle to herself.

The title kind of gives the ending away but trust me when I say that this cozy supernatural mystery has a lot more to offer and I loved the journey. This is a wonderful book that is beautifully written!

A Fun Paranormal Romance Tale.

I've been enchanted by this series. Kristen Painter has created a wonderful paranormal world as a backdrop for her cosy romance stories. The town of Nocturne Falls in Georgia is inspired. I love her writing style and find it very easy to read.

I enjoy all the characters that she creates and the variety of personalities that they exhibit. Each character has strengths that I admire but also have negative traits that they have to overcome before they can find their happy ever after.

The story in this book is not unique. However, I loved the journey Kristen took us on, with its twists and turns. How the relationship between Willa and Nick evolved and grew was beautiful and felt believable.

I downloaded the Audible version of this book and was impressed with B.J. Harrison's performance. The pace of his narration was just right. The emotions he portrayed during the different scenes felt credible. His character voices were not hugely different from one another. However, I enjoyed his vocal variances for the dialogue and was never confused to was speaking.

There is absolutely no offensive content within these pages - language, violence or sex. Therefore, I can recommend The Gargoyle Gets His Girl to lovers of charming, paranormal romance tales of any age. Especially those readers who enjoy a sprinkling of humour and a happily ever after ending.

There is a bonus chapter at the end of this narration for the next book in the Nocturne Falls series. I've already added it to my Audible wish list.

Oh dear...

If you are looking for a great story with wholesome, innocent and a neatly packaged Happily Ever After, then this is the book for you ...

If you are looking for a great story with passion filled, steamy and erotica elements with a Happily Ever After, then this book and this series are not for you 😟

Meh

I found the story to be slow paced and easy to predict what was going on next I did not like this book as much as the other books and feel like it was all a bit awkward and this all happened within a week I feel like if it was pasted a bit better and not (what it felt to me) being shoved down our throats this was not my favourite instalment to the series.
